With no puppy of her own!
And only a very bitter and angry cat lurking in the corners to show that I have any pet love at all!
My friend Terri brought her Pomapoo (Pomeranian and Poodle mix) named Oliver over last night...
|Everybody say "Hi" to Ollie :)|
|OK, now everybody say "Hi" to Zilla!|
Here's an action shot:
Oliver found safety on the couch, as Zilla went straight for his tail every time and was giving him quite the haircut!
Their favorite place to play was directly under the kitchen table while we were enjoying homemade enchiladas, brown rice and black beans. The Coronas almost fell over multiple times!
Zilla is quite the happy little puppy. She lets you snuggle her and smell her puppy fur and gives just the very best little nose kisses ever! Terri got in some pretty quality time...
Zilla was just a little squirmy, but look at how long her legs are! And her paws are HUGE! Jon is gonna have a big girl on his hands sooner than he knows! But he's such a proud papa...
|How do you not just instantly fall in love with that little nose?!|
|"Puuuka... where AAAARE you??"|
Puka wasn't having it. In fact, Zilla was so quiet that Puka thought everybody had left. She ventured back into the living room to get in some serious cuddle time because "WOMAN! WE HAVE BEEN SEPARATED FOR FAR TO LONG. Cuddle needs... I has them."
But then, she saw Zilla. And Puka was piiiiissed. Hissing and doing that throat rumbling thing cats do.
So it appears I may have to re-think this whole "Puka needs a puppy to keep her company because she misses Maggie" thing. Apparently the only dog allowed in our house permanently... is the original Maggie.
And Maggie just couldn't be happier about that....
